      i'm so glad everything is going so well. Knowing you're having a really good time experimenting pleases me no end. Playing around in your studio will be so satisfying and ultimately lead to great success!
      I have not received a thank you card. I did fill out the contact form. Perhaps something went awry. I'm late letting you know this & I apologize for that. I didn't know how to contact you.
      Happy New Year!

      Congratulations, Ben!!! I'm so happy for you making this goal! On my next trip out to Colorado, you might just get a studio visit. All my family lives in Pueblo or Denver, now. Cheers!

      YAY BEN!!!! I am so happy for you! You don' t need to send me all those rewards, just a couple small cereal bowls sometime when I'm there to shop would be great. Again, I'm so happy for you. Love to you three! Carol

      Great idea James. I just started looking in to that this morning. I have an etsy account, but have not set up a page yet. I'll get to work on that. Thanks for the links by the way. Hoping to spend some time with them this evening. Just reached out to some friends on the west coast as well.

      maybe try some of the crafting blogs/forums? it might be easier if you has an etsy page with a few examples etc. i have tried spreading the word in my circles.

      Hey Ben, long time no see :) This is a great project! Sean bought me 3 beautiful bowls a few years back from one of your shows in SD... I love them and use them all the time! I fully support the handmade movement - rock on!
